alternatives to Alt + PrntScn + k for preventing autostart?

Post by GTIspirit »

What alternatives are there to Alt + PrntScn + k for preventing autostart of the Raspberry Pi RaceCapture app?

Alt + PrntScn + k doesn't seem to work for me anymore. (It worked the other day, not sure why it doesn't work any more. :? ) RaceCapture seems to keep auto restarting for me. I tried Ctrl + c but that doesn't seem to work either.

So the workaround is I take the micro SD card and plug it into my Pi 4b, which won't run RaceCapture. Then I can install packages and make other adjustments, and then transfer the card back to the Pi 3b+. It's a kind of backwards workaround so I'm hoping there is some other option to kill the kivy app and prevent it from restarting. And yes, it restarts so quickly I can barely even type in the pi password before RaceCapture takes over the screen again.

We will look into ways of preventing it from restarting if you do the explicit exit from the menu. Thanks for the suggestion.
